DAZ Considers Licensing For 3D Games And Virtual Worlds

DAZ3D may offer a new service called DAZ Links: the huge catalog of 3D models from DAZ site may be available to be purchased for 3D games and virtual worlds.

In this moment, DAZ's content is licensed only for 2D works, render works and art in 2D, but not for real time 3D like games and virtual worlds. But DAZ may change this in a near future and offer licensing for these.

3D Modelers that sell in their marketplace may be benefited from this by getting higher revenue.

The reasons for this are announced in DAZ's forum:

"Recognized as a premier provider of 3D tools, figures and content, DAZ 3D has frequently been contacted by game developers looking to use DAZ 3D assets in their games and virtual worlds. Current licensing (EULA) limits the use of DAZ 3D content. An examination of the issues surrounding this topic including licensing and compatibility raises a number of additional questions. DAZ 3D would like to solicit input from members of the community who are in game development."

This video gives you hints about this too:

DAZ3D wants the opinions of game developers and virtual worlds developers, both individuals, small companies and big businesses.
